Construction of the new Frank M. Sands Sr. (MBA ’63) UVA Inn at Darden and Conference Center for Lifelong Learning is set to begin later this academic year with completion in 2023.
With a gift of $100,000, three alumni who have built successful careers in commercial real estate have started a fund to help Darden students with similar aspirations.
“C. Ray Smith understood the power of a tightknit community, which is why he has been such a valued lifelong mentor to me and thousands of his former students at Darden."
Tre Tennyson received one of Darden’s most prestigious awards: the Lemuel E. Lewis Bicentennial Award for Global Leadership, a scholarship award made possible by a philanthropic gift from Lem Lewis.
The University of Virginia Darden School of Business announced another banner year for fundraising, with $37.1 million in new commitments.
As part of a record gift to the School, Frank M. Sands Sr. (MBA ’63) dedicated $7.2 million as a challenge match in Smith’s honor to fully renovate C. Ray Smith Alumni Hall into a hub for alumni engagement and lifelong learning.
